Prime Minister Announces Constitutional Challenge On Cabinet Appointments Dispute

The Romanian chief of cabinet said that she called the president on Thursday to inquire about the state of the two proposals, for new transport and regional development ministers, with the head of state responding that he will not make a decision at least until next week.

“We see ourselves forced to make this Constitutional Court challenge, because we have an upcoming EU Council presidency and we cannot play with these things,” said Dancila.

Romanian President Klaus Iohannis rejected proposals for the two ministries at a government reshuffle in November. After the ruling Social Democrat Party (PSD) forwarded two other proposals for the offices, Iohannis said that they amounted to “a second reshuffle within a week” and that he will not make a decision until after National Day celebrations on December 1.

 

On Wednesday, the head of state said that he was still “analyzing” the new proposals, for Mircea Draghici as transport minister and Lia Olguta Vasilescu as regional development minister.

In the meantime, the two ministers currently in office – Lucian Sova and Paul Stanescu – have both decided resign at their party’s request, despite the fact that President Iohannis did not sign their dismissal decrees.
